Finlay is taking a gap year to travel with the Pride before starting at Glasgow University to study Marine Biology. Rugby has been a big part of Finlay’s life, initially playing at his local club and then for his school from U11s to U18s.  He’s played across the scrum before settling on No. 6.

Proud Achievement

Making it to the Scottish Schools Shield final three years running and winning the final in two of those years.

Finlay’s Goal

My goal is to inspire as many young people as possible with the passion that I have for rugby and its values. I am also excited to travel through Africa and have as many new experiences as possible.”
